See an allergist: you may be having chronic upper airways inflammation, rhinos infusoria, for whatever reason that's affecting your lower airways, bronchitis. An Allergist / Immunologist evaluation will help decipher your trigger factors, whether you have allergic vs non allergic inflammation and puts a plan of treatment. Check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, good luck
